  1. I have a list of problems with my computer.

    1. A virus turned off my windows firewall, and won't let me turn it back on.

    2. My anti-spyware program can't download updates because it can't connect to my firewall.

    3. I get messages saying windows logon UI had to be terminated.

    4. Other messages say file 0x006006b7 could not be located or opened

    5. My computer doesn't always turn off when I tell it to, I have to hold down power button.

    6. My windows task manager has been disabled my my administrator.

    7. I can't connect to microsoft support or other sites to download anti-spyware.

    SOMEBODY PLEASE HELP!!!

    I have been working on this all weekend. I've ran superantispyware, antimalware, ccleaner, rogueremover, smitfraudfix, and hijackthis. I cleaned up most of the problems, but still can't access microsoft support. I believe i have poiskin.ru virus. If anybody knows how to get rid of this, please let me know. Thanks a bunch.

    of course you are going to want to follow the instructions in the 8 steps-- sticky thread in this forum to make sure you are completely clean, but that link should do away with the poiskin thing.
